Friday, December 3rd Schedule:
Registration/ Judges Instructions 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm (on CFL Judges Lounge Zoom- see above)
Round 1: 4:10 - 6:10 pm (take one break)
Dinner: 6:10 to 7:00 pm
Round 2: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm (take one break)
Awards ASAP once tabulation is complete (on CFL Judges Lounge Zoom- see above)
We will attempt to hire judges, but we need to know entry numbers ASAP to organize this. You can provide judges (who likely will not be used if your school has more than 6 entries) but if you can, please hire out your obligation from the tournament (assuming your students can afford it). Do not add hire requests if costs present a challenge for your students. This is simply to allow the league to fairly secure qualified/ unaffiliated judges. We will still use about 4-6 parent judges per session.
We will aim to have chambers of 12-14 students per room.
We will use direct cross-examination.
For all other motions and procedures (including Presiding Officer guidance) consult this CFL Congress Conventions Guide [link to come in late November]
Students finishing in the Top Position of their House Chamber receive a wildcard to the State Qualifier.
The top two finishers in the Senate will also earn wildcards (assuming we have 11 entries in the Senate/ 1 wildcard if 8-10 in the Senate/ no Senate if under 8).
Thank you, and see you at the competition!
